Huddersfield full-back Jake Mamo faces a lay-off with a foot injury, coach Rick Stone has revealed.
The news is a major blow as the 23-year-old's form has been one of the key factors in the Giants' recent resurgence.
Mamo, who missed the start of the season with an ankle injury, has scored 12 tries in nine Betfred Super League appearances, including four in a victory at Catalans Dragons earlier this month.
Stone told the BBC: "He's got a significant ligament strain and that's a big blow to our team because he's been a revelation. He's really sparked our team in the right direction."
The Giants have won four out of their last five games to climb out of Super League's bottom four. They will also be without prop Sam Rapira for Friday's clash with Wigan through suspension.
Rapira submitted an early guilty plea and accepted a one-match after being charged with raising the knee in a tackle by the Rugby Football League.
